When March arrives I anticipate and look forward to Spring. I think more about Baseball with opening day at the end of the month of late. Some other things of note occur on the Sports side. March Madness means College Hoops and pools for many. Football Free Agency starts in less than two weeks on March 14 (the draft about six weeks later, April 25-27). Yet as a bit of snow yesterday demonstrated, it forecasts no real relief on the weather side. But for me still the small roun...
Interesting how time intersects.  So in last week’s blog, I released an updated Happy Holidays in song playist, which included a few extra Chanukah songs.  Some people provided links to some songs you’ll find next year (though I did informally add them pending placement within the flow of the existing list.).  In the week that followed last year’s blog releasing that year’s updated playlist, we attended a family Chanukah gathering hosted by my brother; I blogged about the mus...
I intended a blog about a show my daughter (Marisa Jean) attended in L.A. Friday eve and a show by the same artist that Fridays with Fred blogger Fred Klein and I attended last month in Roslyn. However, a review by Fred’s “muse,” Bob Lefsetz emailed last night inspired today’s commentary about both concerts by Poco founder Richie Furay who is in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame as a member of Buffalo Springfield.  The shows featured performances of Poco's iconic first live albu...
Just over was three years ago, Gotham lost one of its good guys – Jack Friedman who had passed away earlier today just days short of his 56th birthday. Fittingly because Jack enjoyed live music – we attended several shows together, I drafted a post to Fredslist and the Gotham website wall about his passing and the funeral and Shiva arrangements while attending a jam in Hicksville where I had arranged for my brother Rob in from Portland to play. His funeral like this blog ...
Nothing like live music; especially good live shows.   Already this month, famous for the "Ides of ...."  and how it "weathers," shapes up rather nicely.   On its second day, I enjoyed original Grateful Dead members Bob Weir and Phil Lesh ("Bobby & Phil Duo") at Radio City.   On the "Ides", no assassinaton but rather a celebration of two great talents, both members of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame with Traffic and Buffalo Springfield. As I tweeted that eve Dave Mason smo...
When I seek a respite from work mostly in and around politics (which I enjoy), I turn to sports and music.   I enjoy playing ball, with regular weekend and weeknight full court basketball “games” at my former elementary school gym.   Live music, especially from performers I’ve followed from back in the day who still got it, provides a real shot of adrenaline and more.   Occasionally, I get to enjoy both on the same day. Witness this weekend.   Almost a year ago I blogged ...

Some people can boast of attending Woodstock or Monterrey Pop some renowned concert like George Harrison’s Bengla Desh shows at Madison Square Garden or the Allmans at the Fillmore East or The Band at the Academy of Music (Rock of Ages) or their Last Waltz, or No Nukes also at the Garden. Indeed movies chronicles many of the shows and most of the great performance (though not all). You may suggest other shows. Myself I attended more than 400 and probably some I forgot to d...
This past Thursday I pretty much decided on my blog topic; even discussed it briefly with Nancy at the Gotham LI Legal/ LI/ LI Women Cocktail Party that eve.   As when I would scope out column topics weeks in advance, even have submissions for an upcoming The Public Ought to Know draft, events induce a change; I suspect a revisit to consideration of a new “one strike/ one swing” rule in the near future.   But a concert we attended this weekend certainly provided an intere...

When self-employed you become very aware of what you do with your time. Whereas my business model prefers not to rely on billable hours typical of attorneys and other professionals, my model involves focusing on clients, their needs, and business development activities during the week (and then some). That means some tasks once squeezed in during the week now wait for the weekend.   And when you already program activities such as weekend basketball and usual errands that w...
First off a get well wish to regular Saturday blogger, our friend Mitch Tobol, who some of us fondly call by his nom de pen, webmaster.  A bit under the weather, we wish him to get well.  I am honored to be called in to pinch-blog.  Here goes: Not much of a secret around Gotham when it comes to my fondness towards a certain band's music, and wearing that band's tee (example shown is from the LP cover) or the one of its founder's current band or the tee of the band in the Roc...
